    Instructing Cells With Programmable Peptide-DNA Extracellular Matrices event

    4:00 PM | Room 330, 60 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA 02138

    Materials for controlling biological behavior are important for regenerative medicine and tissue engineering, as well as basic biology. One great unmet need in this area is the development of molecular platforms that can span multiple length scales, from the nanometer to the micrometer and beyond, with precise control of the cell environment. In this talk, Nicholas Stephanopoulos, Postdoctoral Fellow from Northwestern University will describe a new category of peptide-DNA hybrid molecules that can bridge these three scales, and the application of these materials as artificial extracellular matrices for instructing cells.
